    Hello readers This book is very close to my heart The Happy Ever After Playlist was actually the first book I ever wrote and the book that got me my literary agent While we were shopping it to publishers I had the idea to go back in time and write The Friend Zone so we could live through the events that made Sloan who she is in her story Since The Friend Zone came first on the timeline we led with that as my debut novel Obviously because Sloan's book was already written certain ahem THINGS in The Friend Zone had to happen—because they already did They happened before I ever wrote one word of Kristen and Josh's love story The big thing in The Friend Zone wasn't done to facilitate Kristen and Josh's HEA or to add drama It was done because doing it was the whole purpose of writing The Friend Zone in the first place On the chance that you're here reading this and you somehow haven't read The Friend Zone or the blurb on this book I'll sidestep the actual spoiler Then I'll tell you to stop what you're doing and go read The Friend Zone before you touch this one Both books are standalone novels but The Friend Zone will give The Happy Ever After Playlist so much depthSloan's grief will feel authentic—because it is I wrote The Happy Ever After Playlist after watching a very close friend struggle following the sudden death of her husband It wasn't until a beta reader told me I did a good job with the complicated grief that I realized what I'd written had a name It was based on my own observations and attempts to help a friend trapped in a cycle of sadness that she couldn't seem to escape from I encourage you to read the Author's Note at the end Actually I encourage you to read the Author's Note at the end of The Friend Zone too Both books are based loosely on real events The infertility struggle in The Friend Zone is from start to finish my best friend's real life experience with severe uterine fibroids One uick note The songs at the start of each chapter were meticulously selected for tone title and lyrics Listening to them before each chapter really enhances the reading experience There's a Spotify and Apple Music playlist for the book for easy listeningI hope you love this read It's been a long time coming and I can't wait to share Jason and Sloan with the world

    this book is proof that authors deserve a second chance after the problematic fiasco that was ‘the friend zone’ i was hesitant to give this a shot but i am surprisingly relieved that i enjoyed this the first part is an absolute delight the adorableness of how sloan and jason meet how they interact and get to know each other and how they eventually fall for one another is just too sweet but then the story takes a turn as jason goes on tour and then it becomes like every other romance story about a musician on tour im personally a fan of that trope but i know many readers will be bored with it also i will admit that it took me wayyyyy too long to realise that these are the same characters from ‘the friend zone’ since when was this a series? and its probably because they dont feel like the same characters i met in AJs first book if anything sloan is now acting like kristen did and kristen is now written like sloan its as if she just swapped the name of the two MCs and that wouldnt have been a bad thing if the books werent part of a series but since the two stories are connected it feels like poor characterisation to meregardless this is a fun and lighthearted read nothing too emotionally compelling or uniuely spectacular but like the kind of story that satisfies a reader im glad i gave AJ another chance because this story is an immense improvement from her debut novel i have my fingers crossed she proves herself again in the future ↠ 35 stars

    This was SO DRAMATIC but I’d be lying if i didn’t say i got heart suishy feelingsLike first half four stars Normal rom com Pretty good stuffSecond half The kind of scandal and constant ups and downs that I have longed for since my days of reading fan fiction in which the slightly older tour costume designer who is definitely just a self insert for the author falls for Justin Bieber Yes I am thinking of a specific one and please for the love of god sound off in the comments if you remember what it's called because I've been chasing that high for ten yearsI can pretend that I’m better than OMG CRAZY CELEBRITY TRYING TO STEAL MY BOYFRIEND plotlines but I’m not and I never have beenThis book is a blastAnd bonus the titular playlist honestly slaps Listening as we speakBottom line I am realizing I have spent my entire life preparing to meet and fall in love with a pop sensation Universe give me what I deserve this is just justin bieber fanfiction for grownups turns out that's exactly what i've been looking for my entire lifereview to come 35? stars an adorable and fresh romantic comedy about one trouble making dog who brings together two perfect strangerswhy fall in love and live happily ever after when you can just get a dog?

    Guys Read this book It's so cute I thought my face was going to cramp up from all the smiling  I went into this book completely blind I didn't see any early reviews I didn't even read the synopsis I saw the cover and I went with itAnd I am so glad that I did because I lowkey fell in love with itFor the first half of the book I was convinced that it was going to be a full 5 star read It's still pretty close to five stars but not uite and I'll explain why laterThe first half of this book though was absolutely perfect It was everything I could have ever wanted and then some I loved Jason and Sloan Their chemistry their humor their building friendship I was unabashedly in love with their entire romance I was grinning from ear to ear and I didn't want to stopAll the characters were likable and fun to read about Sloan was great and Jason was absolutely everything He was kind patient perfect in every way and I was half in love with him myself Also side characters Kristen and Josh were hilariousI didn't know that this book was connected to the author's previous novel The Friend Zone but now that I do know it I have to read it That other story follows Kristen and Josh's story and I can't wait to read itThe second half of the book is where it started to get less exciting for me This is where Jason went on tour and Sloan uprooted her life to follow him To be fair Sloan's life wasn't all that great so I don't mind that she left it behind What I do mind is how willing she was to leave her dreams behind as wellThankfully Jason the most wonderful man ever written would not allow such things and I think I fell even in love with him than beforeSadly this tour part was where the book dragged a bit It's where all the complications arose and where all of the cute interactions at the start of the book started becoming scarce I didn't love these parts uite as much But then the ending made up for everything and then someI totally recommend this one for any romance and music fans I may or may not have stopped reading a couple of times to listen to some of the songs there mentionedI received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my ownFollow Me Here Too My Blog || Twitter || Bloglovin' || Instagram || Tumblr || Pinterest

    I’m so happy right now because I have to admit I have so many second thoughts before reuesting this book to reviewI can hear you ask me” Why the hell you reuested and stole other romance lovers’ chances you” Okay don’t fill the blanks and I hope you didn’t get angry to me But I have a good reason This is the second book of Abby Jimenez and I had so much trouble to like the first one I didn’t any problem about the witty sarcastic writing but also angtsy heart wrenching story progression I just hate Kirsten with all my heart And I felt so sorry for Josh to choose her And this second book is about Sloan We already met her as Kristen’s bestie so much likeable character we ugly cried for her when she lost her fiancée That was the most soul crushing traumatic part of the first book and indie rocker Jaxon Waters that’s his stage name just call him “Jason” Thankfully I loved both of the characters And I adored Tucker the dog that brought them together when Jason was in Australia for concerts and movie soundtrack installment Cute Tucker literally jumps into Sloan’s car at the anniversary of her fiancé’s death Sloan thinks this might be a sign and her death fiancée sent the dog to rescue her from asocial restricted lifeSloan reaches at Jason and they talk and text on the phone for two weeks nonstop before they meet in person And as soon as they meet sparks start to fly around Especially Jason is so sure he finally found “the one” This beginning was sweet entertaining swoony but that insta love parts were a little flimsy for me But when we get in the middle and Sloan involves Jason’s over consuming and challenging tour plan it rocked my heart several times The story captivated my attention immediately And I was still happy because one of them didn’t do something to give me a reason for hating them At least till the last uarter everything was better Especially the parts Sloan’s car is vandalized tires are slashed and all the arrows showed the crazy ex singer girlfriend Lola who is soul twin of Britney Spears I loved Sloan’s determination and I felt so sorry how she sacrificed herself for the well being of their relationship There is no sign of happy ending for the couple at least for ten years and she was still okay with it even though her heart was tarnished and broken she hardly fought with her inner demons and still suffered from the grief loss of her fiancée The angst and unnecessary melodramatic parts at the end made me angry and I want to punch Jason for several times but I gotta admit he knows how to growl and suffer And let’s not forget the coolest playlist that Abby Jimenez presented us at the beginning of each chapter and all those amazing songs serve so well with the chapter’s contents So I cut only one star for the over exaggerated angst and heart tearing parts and foolishness masochism of our still so much loveable Jason I’m also giving five stars to playlist From Black Keys Para Billie Eilish Artric Monkeys there were my favorite artists and bands’ songs were on the list which made me cheered up So I’m proudly giving four musical tear jerking cute flirty stars And I’m so happy this book’s ending was also satisfying I cannot say the same for the first book but this is promising and one of my favorite romance reads of this year So much special thanks to NetGalley and Forever Grand Central Publishing for sharing this poignant ARC in exchange my honest reviewbloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    All the stars Or should I say hearts💖💖💖💖💖When Abby Jimenez released her previous novel The Friend Zone I opted for the audio version It became the first audio that I really enjoyed Let me re phrase thatI loved it A solid five star experience that left me anxious to pick up Ms Jimenez’s follow up The Happy Ever After Playlist I had high hopes I’d have the same thrilling experience And boy did I Didn’t think it was possible but occasionally lightning does strike twice and I have to say I may have enjoyed this one even This second book in the series focuses on Kristens’ best friend Sloan reeling from profound grief after losing her fiancé A chance encounter and perhaps a bit of divine intervention a stray dog somehow manages to jump into her car via the sunroof Which starts Sloan on her road to recovery as she tracks down and meets the man responsible for the wayward pup Choose happinessAbby Jimenez writes such a touching love story guaranteed to make even the most hardened of hearts believe in love and new beginningsFortunately I was listening to the audio version as I probably couldn’t have continued reading a physical copy through my tears I didn’t want it to end This is now my new favorite audio to date Once again the narration was amazingI can’t wait for the next follow up series to see which character Ms Jimenez decides to spotlight I have a feeling it might be Kristen once again😉A buddy audio read with Susanne that we both just loved Thank you to librofm

    425 stars You can’t control the bad things that happen to you All you can do is decide how much of you you’re going to let them take Last year I read Abby Jimenez's debut novel 'The Friend Zone' and I was blown away When I saw she had a new book coming out I jumped on it The Happy Ever After Playlist can be read as a complete stand alone but if you've read 'The Friend Zone' you'll recognize the heroine Sloan Sloan is Kristen's best friend and suffered a tragic loss Her fiancé Brandon passed away and Sloan hasn't been herself since Sloan has been living half a life since Brandon died and it takes a stray dog named Tucker to bring her back to herself When she finally gets a hold of Tucker's owner she doesn't want to give him back After spending some time talking with Jason she realizes he's a good doggy dad and they plan to meet up when he gets back in town Jason and Sloan haven't met but they become close by their constant phone calls and texts For the first time in a long time Sloan feel something for someone I loved watching Sloan come back to herself She suffered an unthinkable loss and naturally it took her time to move on Jason was perfect for her in so many ways This book started off so strong for me The first half I couldn't keep the smile off my face It was truly perfect The last half had a lot of great parts but there were some things that I sadly didn't love and tampered my enjoyment of the book Still I highly recommend this because there was so much good about this story I really did love so much of it Jason and his family were amazing He was just the kind of man Sloan needed I also loved Sloan and really loved seeing how much of Kristen and Josh we got in this story The Happy Ever After Playlist is a fun feel good romance with a bit of an emotional punch It's heartfelt swoony and I loved it Jason is the most lovable type of hero and I recommend this to all my fellow romance lovers “I want everything with you”

    I know Abby Jimenez really made some of you angry with the direction that Sloane’s life took when we met her as Kristen’s best friend in book #1 “The Friend Zone” Another 5 ⭐️book for meAnd even though she promised to “make things right” in this bookyou just could NOT imagine how she couldWell let me tell youshe found the PERFECT wayand his name is Tucker 🐶 Oh and Tucker’s dog daddy Jason isn’t bad either Even if he is a “soon to be famous” rock star Will he be “the one” or just the person to get Sloane through the “in between” time?Just like with “ The Friend Zone” you will want to scream at some of the characters in frustration and you will both laugh and cry as you cheer Sloane on in her uest to “choose happiness” Do read the “author’s note at the end of this book You may forgive Abby when you doif you haven’t already It explains Sloane's journey and just like with The Friend Zone the author navigates another of life's challenges in the form of a sexy sweet romantic comedy I think Abby knocked this out of the park and I cannot wait to see what's nextShe has uickly become MY favorite romance author Thank You to NetGalley Grand Central Publishing and Abby Jimenez for allowing me to read a digital ARC in exchange for a candid review This title was released on April 14 2020 GRAB it if you need a book which will make you smile ❤️

    It's been nearly two years since Sloan's fiancé was killed and she has spent the whole time grieving a shell of her vivacious creative former self She hasn't cooked she hasn't painted creatively and she barely sees anyone including her best friends Kristen and Josh But she can't fathom moving on with her life since the moment it changed so drasticallyOne day on her way to visit Brandon's grave she sees a golden blur rush out into the street She slams on her brakes hoping against hope that she didn't run over a dog Not only didn't she run it over but it jumped into her car through her sun roof and snuggled up to her giving her a take me home look She tries reaching the dog's owner leaving message after message and then she figures that the best thing she can do is care for him until or if she hears from the ownerSuddenly having the dog around gives Sloan a purpose She's actually leaving the house every day going for walks and feeling a little bit better about things After two weeks she finally hears from Tucker's owner a musician who has been out of touch while on tour in Australia Jason is grateful to Sloan for rescuing his dog but he definitely wants him back so Sloan agrees to watch Tucker until Jason returns to the US provided Sloan keeps him updated as to how Tucker is doingTheir conversations via text get flirtier and flirtier and then turn into long phone calls Sloan can't deny that Jason is awakening feelings in her that have been dormant since Brandon died But is she ready to date again to chance making herself vulnerable once ? For his part Jason is intrigued by Sloan than he has been by a woman in some time But with his music career on the rise is there room for what could become he hopes a serious relationship?When they finally meet in person their attraction is immediate and their connection is intense Jason neglected to mention however that he's not just a musician—he's Jaxon Waters a musician on the verge of fame whose songs Sloan already loves The couple tries to navigate the demands of his growing fame Sloan's uncertainty if she's actually ready for intimacy again and what the future potential for their relationship actually is given Jason is about to embark on a world tour for than a yearHe'd never met the best version of me and for some reason he still seemed to want to be here I was a ghost wandering the rooms of a museum of the person I used to be and Jason was like one of the living who could somehow see me and decided to wander the place with me I liked that he was willing to wander the place with meAs their relationship intensifies they have to decide whether Sloan should go on tour with Jason which means abandoning her family friends and art and possibly dealing with an unstable musician who has feelings for Jason But if she doesn't go with him what does that mean for their future? Can they have a life together if they're always on the road or will they ultimately resent each other? Is their best solution saying goodbye no matter how much it will hurt?Abby Jimenez is an amazing storyteller As she did in her first book The Friend Zone which made my list of the best books I read in 2019 she takes a plot with familiar elements and layers it with emotional complexity and populates her story with fresh and flawed characters you want to root for This book made me laugh made me smile and I'll admit made me cry in my office when I was finishing the book during my lunchI can't tell you how much I enjoy Jimenez's books and the immense amount of heart she imbues them with Both The Happy Ever After Playlist and The Friend Zone would make terrific movies—and yes this one comes with its own playlist as the title promises Don't discount these books simply as chick lit; these are well written books which make fantastic readsThe author and Forever provided me a complimentary advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks for making it available The Happy Ever After Playlist publishes April 14 2020 Check out my list of the best books I read in 2019 at Check out my list of the best books of the decade at all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomFollow me on Instagram at
